Dwindling in Unbelief
- God gave humans dominion over all other living things. 9:2
- Sodom and Gomorrah are still smoking today, with trees that don't bear fruit, and a pillar of salt that looks just like Lot's wife.
- God sent bears, lions, and unknown fire-breathing beasts, sending out stinking smoke or shooting sparks from their eyes.
- Predators and prey, parasites and hosts: God made them because he likes to watch things suffer. 11:25
- All non-believers are vain. They try to understand the world through science, ignoring the god who supposedly created it.
- There's just no excuse for non-believers. If they're so damned smart, how come they don't believe in the Jewish God? 13:8-9
